In August it's time to commune with the sun. Being at the ocean calms me as the tide's moving out. My exhale entrains with gulls swooping down toward the waves. Penetrating golden light is everywhere. My gaze follows the rise and fall of each wave absorbing the sun's healing light flowing into my cells.
The sun calls to me to listen to my body. The small voice within says "Healing is believing in your success."
Often chronic symptoms seem overwhelming. The greatest challenge I've had to overcome has been my own limiting beliefs. When I realized that healing is a practice that freed up energy to be easy on myself and do what I can.
With this reminder I scan my body. I am led to a place in my body where "yes" lives and where "no" lives. Both feel real and true... and I can choose. Being in choice is taking back your power.
Healing does not mean your body will be free from illness. Even when your body is suffering, you have the ability to intend to heal.
You have the strength to let go of what no longer serves you. Give up any habits that keep you bound in fear or worry. Your attitude towards yourself can give you energy for healing and your freedom.
